Why a wooden box you ask?? Because the traditional anniversary gift for 5 years is wood and I had to bring that into the gift somehow.
Here are some pictures of the gift:
(sorry about the light in the middle of this pic)
Then on the lid of the box I stuck an envelope and inside the envelope was a little note explaining what the date box was.
I have also made 12 other envelopes containing notes which I will give to my husband at the beginning of each month and that way he will have more clues as to what that months date will be.
